The General English Year Round Programme runs all year round and allows students to start class every week. Classes start on a Monday, unless there is a public holiday. See www.ul.ie/languagecentre for a full list of holidays. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are planning for Monday 10 January 2022 to be the first day of class in 2022. Friday 16 December is the last day of class in 2022 and Monday 09 January is the first day of class in 2023. Should Covid 19 related restrictions still be in place, the Centre reserves the right to offer a blended learning package that meets Irish health and safety protocols and where classes will be delivered partly on campus and partly online.
